Some say life is the thing but I prefer reading.
a song/poem for kids!
Give me a Break!! by Alan Katz (to the tune of Home on the Range) "Oh give me a break, 'Cause I made a mistake, And my library book's overdue. The Fault is all mine- Oh boy, what a fine, It was due back in 2002! Home, home's where it's hid! This is such a bad thing that I did. And you might say, "Gee Whiz!" 'Cause the book's title is.... "How to Be A Responsible Kid"!

Thank you for coming to the Farm Feast!
and thank you to our sponsors, chefs, servers and many support staff!
The 2014 Bovina Library Farm Feast was a resounding success!  If you have not received our snazzy Farm Feast booklet, please stop by the library to pick one up. Or, you can email the director and request that one be mailed to you. The booklet includes history and other fascinating tidbits about the event, as well as listings of the farmers, artisans and chefs who provided and prepared the incredible delicacies that overflowed from our plates! Our library collections, programs and services will benefit from the generosity of so many individuals and businesses in our community. We are very grateful.
